Rather than post on the Thanksgiving thread, I thought I would start a new one. Annon suggested we post pics of our turkey plates.
Here are mine --
I have 8 of these -- Spode Festival
And because I rarely just have 8 I found these dishes at TJ Maxx, they're by Myott (and bought 8 of them as well) and I think the two work together well. They were less expensive than the Spode -- way less -- and I've never seen the blue ones again except the year I bought them. (Serendipity!)
I don't have anything but the plates although I do yearn for the Spode Turkey platter -- perhaps one year.
But my Spode Blue Italian and Blue Room serving pieces go well with these dishes and it doesn't look like a mish mash on the table!
Those two patterns do complement each other, Linderhof. What a great find!
I think I mentioned on the other thread that we don't have a big crowd at Thanksgiving so I only have four plates of the Spode Turkey that I mix with Bordallo chargers and some Williams-Sonoma acorns. Here are the plates.
Gracie -- very nice plates -- I've always liked the brown better -- colors seem more like Thanksgiving.
Those are gorgeous, Quiltzilla. What's the pattern?
Gorgeous dishes! I have white...everything. I don't have room for different sets. If I did, however, I would be a dish junkie!
In the meantime, I change table linens/placemats/napkins for the season.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Sorry, I don't know why this post is so big. I reduced the size of the pic before I posted.
I found my camera, and my dishes are the same as Martha's!
I really love them, and I have plates, small plates, salad bowls and mugs. I've never seen them again.
I started out with just four plates. Then my friend went to visit her Mom and found more and bought them for me. At the same time, I found more and bought them. Now I have about twenty plates. Anyone want to come for Thanksgiving?
I have another dear friend that just loves them, especially since they're blue and white. I offer them to her every year to use, but she's afraid things will get rowdy and a few of them could end up in the air, lol!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Annon,
Annon -- yours is like mine!!! I just have the plates, however, and did find one or two salad/dessert plates -- would like to have more of those but . . . haven't seen any more than just those two!
They're great plates!
Mine are Currier & Ives by Homer Laughlin. I love them. Each piece has a different design. But since we mostly need dinner plates, that's what I focus on, along with some platters & other serving pieces.
We don't have a big coffee after dinner crowd, & rarely serve a separate salad course at holiday time, so dinner plates work fine & take up less space than a whole set for that many.
I know what you mean about not storing a whole set. I like plates that can do double duty like appetizer plates that are small enough to act as bread and butter plates and salad plates that can act as dessert plates. One of my best decisions was to buy a coffee service made of clear glass that coordinates with all patterns.
